in congress, in this case of course it is probably doa. but that i do think is one of the problems we discuss this. right? it is the first day. we immediately talk about what john boehner said about it and it's just gone. it sort of omits the entire conversation over whether or not these proposals even make sense anymore. >> the fact that it shouldn't be a heavy lift but it presumed doa is sort of what it's sort of come to in congress, vis-a-vis any kind of rational, reasonable, maybe bargain. regarding the subject of corporate tax reform, it's touted as something that both sides want, but matt makes a point, "there's no coherent vision of reform that has broad business support. there's instead vague sympathy for the idea of locking in a low rate that could be achieved in a revenue neutral form by eliminating all deductions, then adding back in all the broadly supported deductions but that again is just another way of saying business leaders want lower taxes on businesses. the apparent consensus in favor of reform is a peer and tracks. theoretically their taxes are going to o go down but when
